Louis Botha Avenue predates the city itself, being one of the two roads connecting the Boer homesteads on the Witwatersrand to Pretoria and beyond. In the 130 years since the discovery of gold it has undergone remarkable transformations, but the most far reaching has just started: the Corridor of Freedom development policy.

In the coming decades it will be transformed by the introduction of the Rea Vaya, and will densify dramatically. But what will this do to the existing heritage fabric of suburbs from Hillbrow to Waverley?

Join Prof. Katherine Munro and Brett McDougall as they explore heritage landmarks along Louis Botha Avenue – from Circle Court in Hillbrow to Campbell House in Waverley – and try to answer the questions posed by these dramatic changes.
